Federal government announces Enabling Accessibility Fund

MP Chandra Arya brings the following to our attention:

Persons with a disability face additional barriers that prevent them from fully participating in their communities and workplaces. To address this, we are pleased to announce that $100,000 is available under Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) for small projects and $10,000 for youth.

Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) – Small Projects Component

  • We are now providing 100% of the funding up to a maximum of $100,000 for small-scale construction, renovation or retrofit projects that enable persons with disabilities to live and work in more inclusive and accessible communities.
  • Organizations have until July 13 to apply. For full details and to apply please visit www.canada.ca/accessibility-fund .

Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) – Youth

  • Youths between 15 and 30 years of age can apply for funding up to $10,000 for accessibility projects.
  • To quality, you need to be determined to make a difference in your community, and you want to develop valuable skills and gain key experience.
  • The EAF’s youth innovation component engages and challenges youth leaders to volunteer and collaborate with local community-based organizations.
  • Interested youth accessibility advocates can apply before October 30 online (www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/services/funding/enabling-accessibility-fund-youth-innovation.html) .

The goal of the Enabling Accessibility Fund program is to create more opportunities for persons with disabilities to participate in communities and workplaces across Canada.
I strongly encourage eligible Nepean organizations, businesses and youth leaders to apply for the EAF before the deadline.
